DRFC Doncaster v Brighton Form Guide

Vital Doncaster looks at the form of both Doncaster Rovers and Brighton and Hove Albion ahead of the game at the Keepmoat this afternoon.

Doncaster

Rovers come into the game after dropping more points in injury time last weekend.

They were denied a much-needed win when Peterborough equalised in the third minute of stoppage time in a 1-1 draw.

So far this season at home, Rovers have won four, drawn six and lost five.

They have lost just one of their last seven at home when Blackpool beat them 3-1 in February.

From their other six games, Rovers have taken 12 points from a possible 18 and have beaten Southampton, Leicester and Barnsley whilst drawing with Watford, Cardiff and Peterborough.

Rovers are the lowest goalscorers at home in the championship this season with just 12 goals.

They have only scored more than one goal on two occasions in the 2-1 win over Leicester and the 2-0 defeat of Barnsley.

Rovers are the lowest goalscorers in the championship with just 27 goals this season.

Rovers have gone six games without a win since beating Barnsley on January 2nd.

They are currently bottom of the championship with 25 points from 31 games and are six points from safety.
